4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wonderful aroma, rich, deep and sweet with heady alcohol, malty, caramel smell. Beautiful dark caramel color. Strong and sweet taste - definitely a sipper.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn (€ 3.90 - best price in town?). No BB date anywhere. Pours a murky coppery brown with a mahogany hue. Head tan in colour, retains relatively well. Nose is breathtaking... a big whiff of whisky jumps right out of the glass, with strong notes of oak and vanilla, caramel, spiciness... a slight red berry tartness, it’s sweet, with a hint of alcohol. Taste is equally good, chocolaty, dusty, woody, quite sweet but also bitter and somewhat dry in the finish. On the palate it is dry, with a soft mouthfeel, and with a medium body and low carbonisation this is a dangerously easy-drinking brew! There is however a tiny alcoholic tingle in the finish but it’s overall quite well hidden for 10%. Great stuff to sip while warming your toes against the furnace.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark mahogany color with a thin, tan head. Caramel and brown sugar in the aroma with a strong sense of scotch. Scotch flavor with brown sugar and spices that linger. Very warm beer with the alcohol there as well. Very good.

Getting hints bourbon, wood, and of course scotch in the aroma. Very nice reddish amber hue to the beer and smooth on the finish with a touch of heat. Taste is a fantastic bourbon aged wee heavy and I enjoyed this one!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear brown with sweetish aroma of malts, whiskey, toffee. Can easily taste the alcohol / whiskey taste but surprisingly mellow.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 Oz bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of bourbon and vanilla with some cinnamon. Flavor is sweet with lots of vanilla and bourbon. Strong bitterness comes on at the end, leaving a bourbon and roasted malt linger. Medium-full body with a sticky mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, not a very subtle beer. Lots of bourbon and sweet malt. Not my cup of tea.

Wow, awesome! One of the best beers of this style out there. IMHO, better than Burbon County Stout.
